Dr Ros Shaw

Research Fellow


My research interests focus on the conservation of species and habitats in human dominated environments, particularly plants, invertebrates and their interactions. My current research includes the impacts of biodiversity in local and surrounding areas on the ecosystem services provided to farmers, particularly pollination and pest regulation. I am also working on a project to assess how urban areas can be improved for biodiversity and people. I also coordinate Professor Juliet Osborne’s research group.

I am also a member of the Biosciences department in the College of Life and Environmental Sciences.
